^ with the G70 Brembo's, all trims except the RWD Dynamic and the 6MT have ceramic pads which many on here report having issues with uneven pad deposits leading to pulsation. members who have swapped to the OE Euro sport semi-metallic pads (standard on the RWD Dynamic and 6MT trims) have seen this issue go away. no uneven pad deposits and much improved braking performance and fade resistance. similar to what C&D reported with their Lightning Lap brake failure on the ceramics. BUT, the Euro pads do create far more dust than the ceramic pads. so there's that to look forward to...it's not all great news.

Curious how you know this? Is there a chart somewhere that shows all the details of each build?

^ how i know what? trim specs? this was documented in Genesis brochures and specification details back in the model year releases. it was also detailed in media coverage of the models. various references have been shared on the forum over the years. it is well understood that the 6MT and 3.3T Dynamic (RWD) trims came standard with the "Euro" semi-metallic pads. all other trims, whether Brembo or not, came with ceramics.

without digging around to find all the various references here's the C&D article on the 3.3 Dynamic which talks about the Sport pads being standard on that trim:

Fair enough and I'm not questioning your data, just wondering where I can find it. I have a Canadian Dynamic 3.3T, which I believe is different from the US Dynamic. I assume it's got the standard pads but it would be good to know with certainty. I've found some specs but not everything.

^ good question - the Genesis Canada product line manager told me that in Canada it was only the 6MT trim that got the Euro pads. i know i saw this documented somewhere as well, but it's been a while...

the US had 2 trims with Euro pads as standard, but since we didn't get the RWD Dynamic 3.3T we got left out. yours is AWD therefore has the ceramics.
